This week on the blog, I am sharing a video to commemorate our milestone: Letters Against Isolation is celebrating its first birthday!
In the video, you'll hear from Cynthia, one of the seniors we write to. You'll also hear from activities directors from a few of the homes we write to, and they share with us how your letters have been enjoyed by their seniors. There are some heartwarming clips from volunteers about why they volunteer, as well as a lovely clip of our three awesome volunteer coordinators. You'll also hear from Ba, my grandma, who inspired us to start Letters Against Isolation.
Grab some popcorn and enjoy the show!
It is hard to believe that Letters Against Isolation has been running for an entire year already! I would like to share a huge congratulations and thanks to each and every one of the volunteers for sharing their time and kindness with seniors around the world. Together, we have brightened over 175,000 days through our joy filled cards! I'm incredibly proud that in 2020, which was such a difficult year, the Letters Against Isolation community was a beacon of light and hope for the seniors we serve. It has been a true pleasure to build this community of amazing volunteers, seniors, and activities directors. Look at all we've achieved together in just one year! Thank you so much to each and every one of you for writing to the seniors we serve and for helping us fight senior loneliness. You, the volunteers, are at the heart of this organization, and none of this would be possible without you!
